Assassin’s Creed Valhalla version 1.2.1 arrives tomorrow, and Ubisoft Montreal is promising new skills, missing fish that were supposed to be in the game, a long list of tweaks and fixes, and more. The size of the patch varies widely depending on your platform and even location – it’s approximately 14 GB on PC, 13 GB on Xbox One, 16 GB on Xbox Series X/S, 5.5 GB on PS4, and between 5 and 8 GB on PS5 depending on your region (couldn’t tell you why that is). Scroll on down for a rundown of some of the new features…
- Added support for Wrath of the Druids, preparing the game for the expansion release on May 13. (a separate download is required on release day.)
- Cold Rage – Ignore hit interruptions while performing successive regular melee attacks. This effect recharges after a few seconds.
- Eye of the North – Prevents flinching from hits while aiming with your bow. This effect recharges after a few seconds.
- Intense Rage – Ignore hit interruptions while performing your next off-hand parry or special attack. This effect recharges after a few seconds.
- Added an option to the gameplay menu to toggle the cinematic camera on/off during finisher moves.
- Addressed an issue preventing the duel with Dag from triggering after sleeping in A Brewing Storm.
- Started populating the game with missing fish species: halibut small, sturgeon small, flat fish big, and mackerel big. Check out our forum post for the exact locations.
- Allowed Bayek's and Altair’s outfit appearance to apply to other armor when using Transmog.
- Addressed an issue that prevented horse galloping sound from playing.
- Extended the duration of the Battlecry ability.
- Tweaked Fearless Leaper to make it easier to jump from greater heights.
- Addressed an issue with the Spinning-Death and Vordr Bite perk that caused the Chance percentage to be higher than intended.
